Maruti Suzuki India, the largest carmaker in the country, has showing no signs of slowing down despite its manufacturing capacity being stretched to the hilt.

The carmaker today announced its sales for the month of September – a humongous 137,321 units – which mark a handsome 29.4% year-on-year growth in the domestic market. Sales across all categories have done well. The entry-level duo of the Alto and Wagon R sold a total of 44,395 units, up 24.8%, indicating that sales momentum has returned to this pair. The compact car quintet of the Swift, Ritz, Celerio, Baleno and Dzire went home to 50,324 buyers last month, up 12.3% YoY. The premium Ciaz sedan also increased its contribution to group sales by 6,544 units, up 52.5%. With this Maruti’s passenger cars sold a total of 105,236 units, up 19.7% YoY.

The big boost to sales though came from the utility vehicles which, as a segment for the overall industry, is notching handsome gains month on month. Maruti sold a total of 18,423 UVs last month compared to 6,331 units in September 2015, a 191% YoY growth. The big contributor to September’s big number is the much-in-demand Vitara Brezza which continues to command a sizeable waiting period. Meanwhile, the Omni and Eeco vans too see demand coming their way, selling 13,618 units, growing 15% YoY.

Exports get into growth mode

Adding pep to Maruti’s September numbers are the export sales. The carmaker shipped 11,822 cars to foreign markets last month, notching 54% YoY growth. Increasing demand for the Baleno seems to be the dynamic here.

Thus, domestic and export sales combined, saw Maruti post a figure of 149,143 units, a YoY increase of 31.1% (September 2015: 113,759).
